Dear trekkers and Routine breakers,
Get ready to explore the mountains, to enjoy bathing in natural water along with pleasing breeze and panorama of Sahyadri ranges. Let’s gear up to join ‘Outdoor Adventure’ on yet another, most awaited trek of the Monsoon season -- “Kalsubai -‘The king of Treks’- The highest peak of the Sahyadris in Maharashtra.” in the Igatpuri region on 12th July 2015.
More about the destination:
Peak Height : 5420 ft. (1,646 mtrs.)
Type : Hill forts
Grade : Medium
At the summit there is a small temple of Devi Kalsubai. This being the highest peak, it commands a beautiful view. The vastly spread out backwaters of Bhandardara attracts ones attention from the top. To the north of the mountain range forts such as Ramsej, Harihargad, Brahmagiri, Anjaneri, Ghargad, Bahula, Tringalwadi, Kavnai can be seen. To the east one can spot Aundha, Vishramgad, Bitangad, to the west Alang, Madangad, Kulang, Ratangad (south west) and to the south Pabhargad, Ghanchakkar, Harishchandragad can be seen.Geographically this place is located above the Kasara ghats on the Mumbai-Nasik highway.Since Kalsubai is extremely famous, enough effort has been made to make this trek easy. There are steel railings, ladders and steps are made too at places where it is difficult to climb. There is a symbolic temple at the top which is made on in the remembrance of Devi Kalsubai.
